What Is Fizzle – An Insider Review

What Is Fizzle - A Insider Review

Interested in learning more about creating a viable online business? Finding answers to the questions that arise when beginning in the development such business is not always easy, and requires research and time. Fizzle.co can help you answer those questions, and build a solid foundation to build your idea from. But what is Fizzle exactly, and how can it help you on your journey? I have tried the platform out for you, and taken many of the offered lessons, to give you an insight.

What Is Fizzle?
Fizzle is a learning platform, accountability space, and active forum designed to help those who are in different phases of developing an online business, no matter which form this business takes.

Pro:
If you are a visual learner but love following along with worksheets and checklists, Fizzle offers both. The entertaining videos, are very informative and up-to-date (unlike some of its competitors), and in-depth, building
upon each other. The often included PDF’s and worksheets are well designed and get straight to the point. There is not much fluff there, which is, in my opinion, a waste of time, anyway. I am someone who is action oriented, and Fizzle is as well, therefore it is perfect for someone who wants to take massive actions in their business creation.

The dashboard and interface of the site are easy to navigate. The forum is in contrast to the dashboard light, and welcomingly bright. I like that the founders of the program seem to be active on the platform as well, and are open to answering any question you might have.

What is Fizzle

Unlike Wealthy Affiliate, Fizzle is not limited in subject matter to just affiliate marketing. This platform is applicable for every form of internet-based business, from selling your own product, to drop shipping to affiliate marketing, blogging, or whatever else you can come up with. I love that.

What I also love is, that lessons from true entrepreneur giants, like Pat Flynn are included. Exclusive content on email marketing, building traffic, and network building are what keep me coming back, as well as the constant new lessons, that are added.  at 35 Dollars a month – after a 30 Day free trial – the platform is worth every penny.

What is Fizzle
Con’s
Unlike Wealthy Affiliate, Fizzle does not include hosting, and it is a lot less social, because the forum is kept separated from the lessons, while in WA it is all integrated, and connection happens within the lessons, on the personal blog posts, and via questions asked. This can be both a negative and positive side, depending on what kind of learner you are. If you easily sidetracked, Fizzle is easier for you to stay focused upon.
Another thing, that is a small downfall of Fizzle, is that they only offer a down-scaled version of an affiliate program. You can not make any money referring people to Fizzle, but you do get a discount on your membership, for each referral, which is nice.
Wealthy Affiliate, on the other hand, allows you to make money from each new premium subscriber, for the time of their membership. This can add up quickly.

Conclusion

I really like Fizzle, because of the less distractive nature of the platform. I am there to learn, and only have to socialize when I want to. Yet, there is peer support, and accountability if you are looking for them, available anytime. That alone is nice to know, even if you are not taking advantage of that often.  If this platform would offer hosting like Wealthy Affiliate had, I would switch completely to that program. I am not new to internet business, so Fizzle offers me more flexibility while keeping me interested and challenged. That is something Wealthy Affiliate lacks at times.

So, if you already have reliable hosting, and are looking for great lessons on how to build your business, you should give Fizzle a try. You can start your free trial by following this link.

What is your favorite platform for learning about business? Please share your recommendations below.

Don’t Fall For Get Rich Quick Scams!

Don't Fall For Get Rich Quick Scams!

The ever growing potential of influencer marketing, affiliate marketing, online businesses, and blogging have drawn more and more people to be interested in trying to create their financial wealth online. As with many businesses, this
created also an influx of businesses that promise these new entrepreneurs ways to get rich quick. Truth is, none of these companies that promise you that you will make money simply by buying their products are actually giving you what you  paid for.

Don’t get me wrong, there are many companies out there, that serve those of us, who are new to the online business world, and provide valuable information. Ranging from all-inclusive packages, like Wealthy Affiliate, online courses like Creative Live and Fizzle, or email marketing services like GetResponds, these companies bring true value. At the same time, there are those waiting to take advantage of those who see the dollar signs of the successful online people, such as some YouTubers, bloggers, and affiliate marketers, and want to reach that level – now.

Related Article: Scam Alert: Affiliate Marketing Mastery

What they do not understand, that an online business, like any other business, takes time to develop, build and make profit from. Even those, who, seemingly managed “overnight success”, rarely showcase the true work they have put into the business BEFORE they arrived at the stage they are now, in a more public space.

Some companies build their entire enterprise on those customers, serving only their bottom line while promising results that just never happen.

How To Spot Get Rich Quick Scams:

Don't Fall For Get Rich Quick Scams!

 

 

1. They do not offer free trials or some kind of free part of their program
2. They promise results quick
3. They appear sudden
4. They have bad reviews (more on reviews in a second)
5. Their testimonials are made up entirely of people with initials as their last name (like Tony R., or Stefanie M. – those are never real people)

A word of caution about reviews:

Most people, me included, get an affiliate commission for providing reviews for a program. This means that some – not all – bloggers and reviewers will purposely enhance their rating, to make a company look better than they truly are. In order to find a reviewer/blogger you can trust, I recommend to see, if they include con’s in their review, and also talk about programs that DO NOT work. If the reviews listed on a website is only made of glowing recommendations, you can pretty much be assured that they are not the most truthful.

I only recommend positively programs I personally use, or have used in the past – sometimes we outgrow particular programs, or found something that fits even better. Not all sites, and companies that I review fit everyone, and I try my best to point this out. Take Wealthy Affiliate for example – I do not recommend this program if you have already base knowledge in marketing, or do not want to build an affiliate marketing business, and rather a different business. Also, it is not the best program for up-to-date social media knowledge. If you are a complete newbie to affiliate marketing, on the other hand, this program is for you.

I hope I have cautioned you to be careful in spending your hard-earned money on programs that can not help you, and promise you quick results, much quicker than you should reasonably be able to expect.

Question:

Which program have you tried out, that did not life up to their promise? Share your experiences in the comment section, below.

Passive Income Opportunities: Are Zazzle Stamps Legal?

Passive Income Opportunities: Are Zazzle Stamps Legal?

This post may contain affiliate links – see disclosure page for details

As I have stated before in a previous post, Zazzle is a great place for additional passive income opportunities, through their variety of merchandise available to affiliate marketers, as well as designers who want to share their art with the  world. But are the unique, personalized Zazzle stamps legal to use, or are they worthless as actual postage stamps?

Don't Go Bacon My Heart - Funny postage stamp

Zazzle postage stamps are indeed legal.

In order to design postage stamps for Zazzle, the designs go through an additional verifying and approval step via the US Postal service, who has the right to disallow any designs that they do not find  appropriate for their collection. Once approved, which usually happens within 2 to 3 business days, the stamp designs are perfectly legal to sell and use just as regular standard postage stamps

 

 

Customized and personalized Zazzle postage stamps are wonderful for many occasions, and therefore are a great addition to any of the following affiliate marketing niches:

– Weddings
– Baby showers, Birth announcements
– Party and celebration niche
– Mother’s Day, Father’s Day
– Fourth of July
– Christmas
– Halloween
– Thanksgiving
– Valentine’s Day

Monogram Wedding Postage Stamps|Custom

Personalized Zazzle Stamps – Monogram Wedding Announcement with Date

You can also find surprisingly unique stamps in other categories, such as

– Yoga
– positive thinking
– birds
– pets
– flowers
– vintage designs

and much more.

Saving Money 101: What Is ibotta?

save money grocery shopping, what is ibotta

Start by saving time and money!

In order to be successful in business, it is important not only to be concerned with your income but also your outgo.
It is that reason why I decided to share with you some of the ways I save time and money, which in turn gives me a chance to  invest more into my business.

Grocery shopping is probably one of my families largest unavoidable expense (when disregarding the basics like rent), but also the one that is the most flexible. It is there where I can save the most money, by adjusting what and where I purchase or buy using rebates and coupons.  This is where ibotta comes in handy.

What is ibotta?

earn money grocery shopping, what is ibotta

 

Ibotta is a shopping program and app, that allows you to get rebates deposited into your PayPal account for things you already buy. For example, I purchase tomatoes on a regular basis, and the ibotta app has a rebate of 25 cents for them. All I had to do, is purchase the item at my selected grocery store, scan in the receipt for proof of purchase, and
also the little barcode on the sticker of the tomatoes, and that’s it! ibotta credited the 25 cents into the account I have
with them, within a few minutes.

earn money grocery shopping, what is ibotta

 

Now 25 cents does not seem like much, but I saved a whopping 12.75 yesterday, just by going grocery shopping! There are rebates for milk, bread, coffee, dish soap and more, some pay back as much as 3 Dollars, others are 50 cents for my favorite yogurth or 1 Dollar for my daughters favorite vegan mayonnaise.

ibotta allows you to receive the rebates via your PayPal account each and every time you reach their 20 Dollar threshold.  There is no wait for a specific day of the month to get your money, but they do say that it may take up to 48 hours to be deposited into your PayPal account. Truth is, it has never taken much longer than 10 minutes for me so far, so that is  pretty awesome too.

 

 

You can shop for all types of groceries, as well as other goods from clothing stores to items you would find in a drug
store.

save money shopping, what is ibotta

The ibotta app is relatively easy to use and works for all Android and iPhones. Signing up is free, and if you use
my code linspgx you get a special 10 Dollar bonus just for signing up and downloading the app! Speaking of bonuses, ibotta also offers bonuses for those who add a lot of receipts. The bonus amounts vary, but
I am one receipt away from receiving an extra two dollars just for shopping! Pretty cool isn’t it?

Where can you shop and earn?

Almost everywhere!

Walmart, Target, Publix, Albertsons, Walgreens, CVS, Whole’s Food, Smiths and Macy’s are just a few of the stores you can use these rebates for. No need to change your routine, shop, where you always shopped before!

Verdict:

I use ibotta every single day, because it is super convenient, and for a large family with multiple pets,where groceries are a major expense, the savings add up very quickly. My average rebate a month is around a 100 Dollars,  from shopping alone.

Extra bonus for affiliate marketers:

Earn money for ibotta referrals

Yes, ibotta has a referral program. For each person you sign up through the app, you receive 5 Dollars. Again, this adds up quickly, considering how this program pretty much sells itself. I am proud to share this app with my friends and family, and everyone who is willing to listen, and I am sure you will too!

Sign up today! (remember code: linspgx)

Happy Savings!

How To Get The Most Out Of The Wealthy Affiliate Network

Wealthy Affiliate Affiliate Marketing Make Money From Home

This post contains affiliate links, see disclosure page for details

If you are considering joining Wealthy Affiliate, to learn more about affiliate marketing, you should consider a few
points to get the most out of the program.

1. If you are looking for a simple hosting service, that works with WordPress, but you have already experience in Affiliate marketing or have other passive income experience, you should consider skipping the program and host with another service such as BlueHost. While there are many positive parts to Wealthy Affiliate, for hosting services alone it would be too expensive for one site.

2. Now if you are planning on hosting more than one site, Wealthy Affiliate is a deal. With the membership, you can host up to 25 websites, without paying any extra. Each of them includes support, emails for your domain, and continuous updates, as well as great security. There are no hidden costs, expect that you have to pay for a domain, just like you would with any other hosting service.

3. Take the offered courses, in the assigned order! This is especially important if you are new to Affiliate marketing. The skills taught in Wealthy Affiliate build upon each other, so if you skip one, you might miss out on some important points.

4. Read the peer-offered training modules.

Those lessons range from how to create  Youtube videos for your marketing efforts, to how to create Facebook ads.

Marketing 101: Using Color To Influence Purchasing Decisions

Marketing 101: How Color Influences Purchasing Decisions

People are overwhelmingly visual. Taking advantage of that fact in marketing requires an understanding
of how color influences customers decisions if they will purchase a product, and when.

There have been countless studies on the fact that colors affect our emotions, and via this visual stimuli, also affect our consumer behavior. As marketers, we can use this knowledge to deliberately direct our reader’s attention toward a particular product and affiliate link we want to push.

But, this “science” of color influenced marketing, has many components that should be kept in mind. Cultural and religious background, as well as gender, guides the response to color, so you should be aware of those aspects  as well. Again it means that you need to be very clear about who your target audience is, to be most effective.

In addition to that, the combination of colors, and the contrast are not to be overlooked. A stark contrast of complementary colors make aspects easier to read, so keep that in mind.

Choose vibrant colors if you are interested in a high-energy reaction, and muted colors, such as different shades of browns, tans, and grays for a more subdued subject matter.

 

Meaning of Colors And Their Effects On Consumers:

Red: Brighter reds have a more energetic influence than reds that are mixed with browns. This is also a color of action, yet should be used in its brightest stage only in small amounts, as it also brings out strong emotions, including anger. A positive earthy warm red is also great to use during the winter holiday season and associated with both Christmas  and Yule. For your Asian customers, bright red is a color of good luck.  This color has a stimulating effect on the body, quickens the pulse, and draws in attention.

Green: The brighter range of this color signifies renewal and Spring time. It is associated with freshness, and should be used when you are trying to convey fresh ideas and new beginnings. The darker greens evoke environmental consciousness, as they are deeply associated with outdoors, growth, and any natural aspects of life. Greens have a grounding effect on people, it can be used to solidify a specific point. This peaceful color is also associated with the winter holidays This color has a calming effect on the body and allows the consumer to make clear, thoughtful decision, and become more decisive. Often used in stores to calm people.

Blue: If you are marketing primarily to men, this is the color that you should use, but not in its brighter, instead more mute states. Light blue is associated with children, water, relaxation, and trust. Blue is a color that curbs the  appetite, so do not use it around food related products, unless you are promoting a diet. It also increases productivity, which might draw a potential consumer to do more research on the product before purchasing it.

untitled-design

Purple: Combining the fact that this color is associated with wisdom, and beauty, it is the perfect color for lifestyle, beauty, wellness, and anti-aging niches. It is considered a regal color. Purple sparks creativity and inspiration. Purple with red infliction is a more sensual color, while purple with blue undertone is a more meditative shade.

Orange: A very high-energy color, that draws attention and provides stimulation without the side effects of red. Brighter  orange shades are summer colors and call forth warmth, while the orange-brown shades are those associated with reaping a harvest, being rewarded and Fall. Do not use bright orange or yellow around babies, as it has an anxiety-inducing effect on them, and on some adults. It is best used as an accent color, to draw attention toward a product or service.

Yellow: As I mentioned before, do not use this color, if you are marketing toward small children, or people with  attention deficit disorder, as it can cause anxiety in both of those groups. Yellow should be used sparingly because it is a blinding color, which can make advertisements hard to read. On the positive side, it stimulates logical thinking and intellectual exploration.

Marketing 101

Black: Studies have shown that images with overwhelmingly black or darker shades, will be shared less frequently on Pinterest, then brighter colors. While this is a color of authority, it should be used strategically, as it can be
easily overwhelming and depressing. You can use this color to make something look smaller, or to give it authority
by casting it within a black frame.

White: This color of purity and cleanliness, can showcase a new beginning when used in marketing. It also conveys a message of neutrality. Minimalistic in its absence of any distraction, it will make any product you are featuring stand out in contrast, and is, therefore great in highlighting smaller products.

Grey: It is a color of practicality, but also a color of old age. That said, these three colors combined are a part of
minimalism, and therefore can work with the right audience. A more general audience, however, will associate this shade as one that is boring, and depressing.

Statistics On The Importance Of Color In Marketing

According to Kissmetrics over 84 % of people are stating that their decision to purchase depends on the visual at hand. Consumers make their purchasing decision often within the first 90 seconds of getting in contact with a product, 62 % of that buyer, their impulse is based on color. 52 % of customers state, that they did not return to a store (online as well as offline) due to lack of esthetics.

Keeping these statistics in mind, a marketer should be a least familiar with the power of colors when making purchasing decisions.

All three of these big platforms contain a wide variety of supplies, that can be turned into beautiful projects, from doll faces to yarn.

Best Paleo Affiliate Programs – Opportunities For Bloggers And Marketers

Best Paleo Affiliate Program - Opportunities For Bloggers And Marketers

Health, Fitness, and Weightloss are those evergreen niches for affiliates that are always profitable for bloggers and marketers  and tend to draw a large amount of readership looking for constant up to date info and products. Paleo affiliate programs fall perfectly into this niche. I have compiled some of the best paleo affiliate programs for you, to assist you in monetizing your niche  blog and website: (This post may contain affiliate links) 

Primal Palate
Primal Palate offers a 30 Day Guide to Paleo Program, which is an interesting resource for those who are new to the diet. Affiliates can take advantage of their program by joining Clickbank, and then following this link. Primal Palate  Affiliate website has plenty of banners and images to choose from, that will make promoting the program easy. If you want  to try out the program yourself (which is what I highly recommend), sign up here. Your commission is 50%, per sale.

Best Paleo Affiliate Program - Opportunities For Bloggers And Marketers

Paleo Plan
Paleo Plan is a more extensive paleo program with monthly memberships ranging from a comprehensive meal planning program with recipes, to a Paleo Workout plan. They offer a 14-day-free trial to all members, no matter which plan you choose. The downside for affiliates is that the commission is paid only for the free trial sign up – 5 dollars per new member, but  no reoccurring affiliate commission as it is common with many subscription plans (Wealthy Affiliate, for example, pays a  reoccurring commission of over 22 Dollars month, every month)

. To sign up for their affiliate program, click this link,  then you will be redirected to ShareASale. This program does not auto approve their members, but will let you know within 2 to 3 business days, if you have been approved or not. But, like I mentioned above, take advantage of the free trial, to try out the program before promoting it, to see if it fits your audience.

Paleo Magazine
This company offers a 10 % commission to anyone directing sales toward their store, which includes issues to their magazine, eBooks, and Paleo gear (which is basically T-Shirts and other accessories, with their logo on it). What I do not like about this program is that they payout threshold is high – you have to reach 100 Dollars, in order to get paid. Unless you have a large readership, and/or large email list, I would recommend to try your hands on the other two mentioned above, due to that fact alone. They do payout via PayPal, which is very convenient, and the application is short. There is no auto approval, so you have to wait till they get back to you.

Best Paleo Affiliate Program - Opportunities For Bloggers And Marketers
Paleo Treats
Now, here is something for those of us who like to snack. Paleo Treats offers, as its name suggests, treats and snacks for those who adhere to the Paleo diet. Affiliates can make 7 % per sale, with a payout minimum of 50 Dollars, which is a lot easier to achieve with consumables, such as snacks. I like the variety and quality of their products, so I highly recommend them as a potential affiliate marketing partner.

You can sign up for their program here. Again, no auto approval but they get back to you quickly. Paleo Treats has their own affiliate program, so you do not have to sign up for ShareASale or Clickbank to join.

 

 

Best Paleo Affiliate Program - Opportunities For Bloggers And Marketers

 

I hope you enjoyed this list of paleo diet affiliate marketers. The list is current as of August 2016, and I will update
it if there are any changes with the individual programs. If you are new to Affiliate Marketing and are not sure where to start, I have the perfect solution for you.

Free basic affiliate marketing training is available to you, via Wealthy Affiliate. Not only will you receive support, and two free websites with your free membership, but I am in the  community daily, and always available for questions, concerns or if you just want to say hi!

A Powerful Stand-Alone Keyword Search Tool – A Jaaxy Review

 

A Powerful Stand-Alone Keyword Search Tool - A Jaaxy Review

Finding an efficient keyword search tool, that does not cost you a fortune (or better yet, has a free option), is a task I did not like to embark, especially considering at the time, I was looking for the tool, I had no  idea how to use a keyword search tool, and how to compare them. I am lucky, that I ran across one valuable option before spending my hard earned money on those tools that are not worth a penny.

Upon the recommendation of a friend, I tried out Jaaxy- a keyword search tool with a free option, to search up to 30 searches per month. That is what initially sparked my interest – the fact that I could get familiar with the tool before having to pay anything. No commitment, no prior knowledge needed, and no payments, until I knew I liked the tool. What did I have to loose? Nothing!

You can try it out right now, for free!

 


Before I continue, I must say that I mostly use the keyword search tool that comes with my Wealthy Affiliate membership (which happens to be created by the same people, who created Jaaxy – so the tool is very similar), but before I took the plunge and became a WA member, Jaaxy was the best stand-alone tool I could find for the beginner I was, while being thorough enough to keep me engaged now, with much more experience.

Here is what you get from Jaaxy:

30 Free Monthly searches.
How much traffic you’ll get if you reach the #1 spot.
QSR (if it’s under 100, you have a GREAT chance to see your site on page 1).
KQI (green means good), SEO Power (1-100 scale. 1 is worst, 100 is best).
Domain search (allows you find if .com, .net, .org’s are available).
To Do (adds the keyword to a To-do list).

(the free keyword search tool on Wealthy Affiliate, has these same features)

Additional Jaaxy-only features:
A Powerful Stand-Alone Keyword Search Tool - A Jaaxy Review
a site rank tool
A tool to analyze your competition called SERPS (search engine rankings)
the ability to search for affiliate programs associated with your keyword searches
A brainstorm section
Related keywords to your searches which will provide you with tons of new ideas to work with

and most importantly for me at the time:

A training section!

Without this training, I would have been lost at that time. Thankfully, by using the Jaaxy keyword search tool, I became a lot more familiar with the process of finding proper keywords, and the concept of SEO, something that eluded me prior to finding this program.

So, if you are new to SEO and keyword search tools, Jaaxy makes it easy for you to succeed, without the need to  commit to a larger program, such as Wealthy affiliate, and without the hassle of some of the free programs out there. To me, Jaaxy is a perfect stand-alone keyword search tool to grow your website or blog, no matter what your niche, or goal.

Bonus!

Jaaxy currently offers three training bonuses for free! You can access them in the training section, once you created your free account. They are:

Bonus #1: 1,000 High Traffic, Low Competition Keywords

Bonus #2: Niches, Keywords, Success

Bonus #3: Domain Industry Secrets

Get your free downloads, today! 

Question: What is your favorite keyword search tool?

6 Tips On How To Get Control Over Your Finances

6 Tips On How To Get Control Over Your Finances

Whether you are starting your own business, or running a household, answering the question on how to get control over finances are on the minds of all of us, no matter how high or low your current income is. This is especially important when you are trying to find a few extra dollars to invest in your new business, or see if you can afford to switch from working for someone to being self-employed. I have compiled 6 Tips for you to help you get in control off your finances.

1. Be clear about your income – that is especially important if you are working part time or full time online, make sure you note not only how much but keep track of which passive or active income stream makes you what money when. Not only are you obligated to keep track for your taxes (at least in the US), but it also allows you to budget more properly, which is especially difficult when you have a flex income, like from internet marketing.

2. Make two lists for your outgoing expenses – one for your reoccurring, and not changing expenses (like rent, or Hulu subscriptions), and another for those who vary (like electric, and food)

6 Tips On How To Get Control Over Your Finances3. Meal Plan – yes, many of you consider meal planning either something they rather not do, or associate it with being on a  diet, but there is a true benefit to your  budget when you begin planning your meals ahead. First of all, you can use the weekly sales as your guide for planning your meals, secondly, you are less likely to waste food, and third of all, you are saving time, by not having to go to a grocery store that often. That last point also saves you money, because it keeps you from being able to do more impulse shopping. We all do it, buy one or two items more than we have planned, especially when we go shopping with our kids. So, stay out of the grocery stores as much as possible

4. Pay in cash – for some people (of course their exceptions), handling cash is much easier to budget than having money in the account. It allows you to separate your finances into sections, even using envelopes for each expense category, if necessary.

5. Make sure everyone knows what comes out of what part of your allotted budget. Some people keep a separate amount of money for cleaning supplies, while others – like me – include that part of the budget into the food budget (simply because I am buying it mostly at the same place), but if you do not have clear set rules, and a spouse, you want to make sure you communicated and agreed on what is included into what section of your budget.

6. Which brings me to a very important point of this post – communicate with your partner. If you are not able to communicate clearly with your partner about finances, I am going as far as to tell you, that you either have to learn this skill in a hurry, or you are in huge trouble. Many family and relationship fights center around finances, and can even downright lead to abuse. Make sure you began communicating about finances, before starting to get serious in the relationship, and make this subject as much of a priority, as the discussion of future children, and any other important relationship aspects.

I hope these budget tips helped you a little bit. I will continue to talk about budgeting from time to time, as I see
that an important part of being a successful business woman.

Fiercely Independent Blessings
